    Lol given the issue I had at the spine / front shoulder area, I'll pass on the aggravation.

    I’m afraid that as long as pigs make people money in OK, they will never be curbed in this state.

    I think Oklahoma is considering the use of warfarin . Guess we will see.

    They have used it (and still do I think) on yotes in areas where they are a real issue to ranchers.

    I’m thinking the bill won’t pass. I’ve seen crazier things though. It didn’t originated from the dept of ag or wildlife dept.

    I am all for the complete removal of pigs from the state.

    There's so many people uneducated on the warfarin. They see the "poison" reference and freak, and don't take the time to understand the dosing, how it works, and completely ignore any studies done about secondary poisoning.

    Don’t worry I’m completely with you on this. I wasn’t trying to imply that I was against it. Even though it probably read that way. The impression of warfarin is far more negative than it should be.

    I wasn't reading it that way. Chances are that most folks who are against it, either knows someone who's been prescribed it and are currently on it, or have been on it.

    I genuinely hope y’all can get the use of warfarin passed but don’t hold your breath. The ones profiting from pigs and pig hunting will vigorously oppose it and more than likely win by capitalizing on general public ignorance.

    My brother and I were speculating today on how long it will be before they’re in Alfalfa county....
